STATEWIDE — Break out those wine glasses because wineries across the state will be opening their doors Saturday for Maine’s Open Winery Day.
“They open up the back door instead of just coming in the front door,” said Joan Anderson, the co-owner of Winterport Winery.
” You get to see a little bit more of the inner workings,” she said.
It’s a day to visit tasting rooms, sample wine and support local businesses.
The Maine Winery Guild has been hosting the event for around 15 years, according to Anderson.
Winterport Winery has been a part of it from the start.
“There are some very wonderful products that we can be proud of throughout the state here that are produced here in Maine,” said Anderson.
A new stop added to the Maine wine trail is Dragonfly Farm & Winery.
Opening in 2005… The business took new ownership last August.
“We specialize in fruit wines: cranberry, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry. If you can make wine out of it and it’s a fruit we’re going to do our best to do it,” said Douglass Pitts of Dragonfly Farm & Winery.
They’re offering different wines to taste if a glass of sweet wine is for you, along with opening their vineyard as it’s close to harvest.
Across the state, there is a bottle for the red wine, the white wine or rose lovers.
“Cheers to maine. And cheers to Maine wines,” Anderson said.
